Childbirth should be one of the happiest and most memorable moments in our lives. Unfortunately, in some cases, because of medical negligence, childbirth can be a disaster and a nightmare, that leaves a lifetime of pain and expenses. The process of birth must be carefully managed by the attending medical professionals. Careful monitoring of the baby and the mother should allow for fast action to be taken should the baby be in distress.
When there is a failure to act quickly, or when the management is done in a negligent way, the baby can suffer permanent and sometime catastrophic damage. If your baby was injured during the in the birth process resulting in mental retardation or a brachial plexus injury, you have legal rights and may be entitled to compensation. Our firm, led by the most trusted birth injury attorneys in the New York City and surrounding boroughs, has enormous experience in handling these difficult birth injury cases.
However, other serious problems can also occur during birth, including brain damage from other causes, like a stroke from a blood clot, infection, sometimes caused by the failure to treat Strep B can result in terrible consequences If the mother has Strep B and doctor fails to properly treat it prior to delivery, the newborn may become infected. This can result in brain damage.
The failure to recognize and treat blood clotting disorders in the mother can result in the baby or the mother suffering from a stroke. If a mother’s amniotic fluid becomes infected (due to a premature rupture and water breaking) and doctor fails to treat her properly or deliver the baby in a timely manner, serious infection can result. These infections in the newborn can cause brain damage and cerebral palsy.
Another well-known cause of complications and injury during delivery is gestational diabetes – when the mother becomes diabetic during the pregnancy. This can cause the baby to become too big (particularly in the shoulder area) causing the baby to become unable to safely pass through the birth canal naturally. Occasionally doctors fail to foresee this problem and attempt to deliver the baby vaginally. This can result in a traumatic delivery, fetal distress, cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy.
Some birth injuries become apparent after birth, such as in cases of elevated bilirubin, kernicterus or microcephaly. Others are caused by the mother’s illness during pregnancy, such as in gestational diabetes. If your baby has suffered a serious injury or condition due to medical errors, it is important that legal action is initiated as soon as possible.

Injuries to Mothers
Not all birth related injuries occur to the babies. Sometimes mothers are the ones who suffer injuries or physical damage. Although advances in modern medical technology make it rare for women to die during childbirth, it is still a traumatic event for both the mother and child. Teenagers and middle-aged moms are particularly susceptible to pregnancy complications.
A condition called preeclampsia or eclampsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension) can lead to serious complications for both the mother and child. If left untreated, it can be fatal or cause severe injuries, including a brain hemorrhage in the mother.
This type of injury maybe the result of medical malpractice, and may have been avoidable through proper medical care.

How to File a Personal Injury Claim
In order to file a personal injury lawsuit in California, you must be able to demonstrate that the accident was caused by the negligence of another and that you have sustained injuries as a result. One of the most important things you can do after an accident is to gather evidence and get medical attention. This is true even if you are not yet sure of the full extent of your injuries. Many people do not realize that they have been significantly hurt and that their medical conditions will continue to influence them for years to come.
For example, many victims of whiplash report that they are still suffering chronic pain years after the accident has happened. Even with a comprehensive health insurance plan, this may not be enough to assist you with the recovery you need. This is why hiring a Santa Barbara personal injury attorney to assist you with the next steps to protect you now and in the long run. When filing an injury lawsuit, you need the insight of an experienced injury attorney who has experience in the field of personal injury cases. You should never attempt to handle a personal injury case on your own as you could make big mistakes that could cost you and compromise the integrity of your claim.
